Start your outing in the Sultanahmet District,in the heart of the Old City,to enjoy your Istanbul family vacation trip.Your guide shares facts about the Byzantine and Ottoman empires as you make your way to the Hagia Sophia,the basilica-turned-mosque-turned-museum whose massive dome and soaring minarets are architectural icons.Istanbul trip in deepth for several days would be the good choose in this winter.
Visit the Blue Mosque
Also known as the Sultan Ahmed Mosque,the Blue Mosque’s two most striking features are its 6 minarets and blue domed exterior.You’ll want to dress modestly and if you’re a woman you’ll need to wear a scarf over your head as this is still a functioning mosque.
Eat Turkish pizza
Lahmacun is considered to be the Turkish equivalent of pizza.This thin dough is topped with minced meat,vegetables and herbs.
